First Line Fridays :: A Song Unheard


It's First Line Friday time again! The ladies over at Hoarding Books are hosting, as always, and I am just excited to actually keep it going for my second week! (I guarantee this every week business won't continue, I just know myself too well. So I'll pat myself on the back just this once! ;)

So, without further ado, I give you... A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White


35069089


The music seeped into her soul like fog over the Thames. Willa Forsythe leaned back against the grimy bricks and tilted her face up to the early-evening mist. It kissed her cheeks, cooled her, dampened her clothes. She let it. It was a reasonable price to pay for this.

I am SO excited to share the first line from my current read today! I had been hearing amazing things about this book and so far they are well deserved! (In fact, this book might have been featured on someone's FLF post last week? I've seen it so many places that I forget for sure. But no matter! I'm featuring it anyway!) This is my first Roseanna White book and if things continue the way they're going, I do not think this will be my last. SO good!

What are you reading this weekend? What is your first line?

  1. You and I are on the same page this week with the book we shared (even how many first lines we shared). This is my new favorite Roseanna White book!

    Here's the first line from a book I hope to get to this weekend:

    FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson had survived missions in the Middle East, been detained in Iran, escaped an ISIS death trap, and still walked and talked.

  4. Love this book so much. It's such a great read!!!

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am showcasing Naomi Rawlings's novel Love's Bright Tomorrow. Here I will share the first line from the novel I am currently reading, Mary and Bright by Shannon Graupman.

    "Mary Bradford's heart raced as she sat on the edge of her king sized bed -- her gaze affixed on the single white sheet of paper resting on the nightstand."

  6. Loved this book!

    I'm sharing the first line from Aint Misbehaving by Marji Laine on my blog. I'm currently reading My Sister's Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. It's the middle book in a trilogy and I really shouldn't have read the third book first, because it did ruin some of the big-picture suspense. Here's the first line:

    The cry for help came as I was coasting toward the bicycle rack at the far end of the story.

  9. The first line on my blog is from a novel by Michelle Griep, The Captive Heart. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter 5 from the book I'm currently reading, The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller "It was entirely possible that the excitement of last month's come-out ball was about to be surpassed."

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Happy Friday! (What's left!) My first lines (sorry, but I included the 2nd) is from These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart:

    "Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared."

    1. Becky: I hear such wonderful things about Ann Gabhart books! Clearly I need to read one soon. :)

  11. I just started A Song Unheard today, too! It's my second ever book by Roseanna. If you like this one (and I believe we both will), you simply MUST read A Name Unknown (book 1) soon! The mystery and hero and setting are all so wonderful!

    Happy weekend!

    1. Courtney: I think I remember you gushing over A Name Unheard? You and maybe Rachel and I'm not sure who all else. But y'all definitely moved it high on my priority list, especially after trying this one! :)

  12. I loved this book!

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh's latest release, The Awakening, on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from my current read, 'Weaver's Needle' by Robin Caroll:

    "Unless you get one of those miracles they're always talking about in church, I don't see how you'll be able to keep the business open into spring."

    Have a great weekend. :-)

  14. this is your first Roseanna book??? I'm shocked! I share the blame. I should have pushed them on you ages ago :-P

    My current first line is from Cathy Gohlke's Until We Find Home: "Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres."

    Replies
    1. Carrie: I know, crazy, right?! The only excuse I have is that I simply have too many books on my TBR! ;)

      I haven't ever read a Cathy Gohlke book yet either. I love that line though!
